Among my Christmas gifts from Japanese Family was a bag of Gobo.
Gobo is the root of the Burdock plant, that can grow to 3 or 4 feet long.
The Gobo is crispy, white, sweet and the flavor is similar to the artichoke.
This can be cut into chips, or thin slivers that are usually stir-fried, added to soups, stews
roasted and my favorite pickled.
This is a bag of cut Gobo, that has be soaked in a sauce.
When opening the bag the aroma of spicy pepper is then mixed with sesame, touch of sugar and soy.
Eating these are like crunching air. They are so light.
I don't know how these are made, possibly a freezed dried method ?
I now have a new favorite snack.
Plus what a great label.
